Hello. I have a TB48 battery. When i slide the battery in the drone and start it up it says in the overall status battery error. After about 2 seconds it says overall status normal. When i check the battery cells everything seems normal, can i trust this battery?

Do you regularly cycle this battery (discharge until it turns off then fully recharge)?

I have discharge the battery 1 time since i bought the drone. Just bought the drone about 3 weeks ago. How often do you recommend i discharge?

It is recommended that you cycle them every 10 - 20 charges.
I would try cycling it and see if the error goes away, also, fly cautiously for the next few flights, go easy on the sticks.

how exactly do you cycle it can i ask?

run it down to nearly flat and then charge up full again or is there a setting somewhere?

I belive you have to fly until you reach about 10% and then just leave the drone with the power on until it is completely drained. Immediately after you charge it fully up.

If you have bought it 3 weeks ago, don't waste time for offering your own solution. Just return and replace. This is your consumer right, don't take others problem into your own hands. Everytime you discharge your battery, its capacity will diminish. Deep recycle hurts it more. So why you want to sacrifice your battery life and your time for an pre existing issue.
Caution! If you have a battery problem don't fly the drone off the ground to fix that problem.

If the battery needs cycling, the percentage cannot be relied upon, that is one of the main reasons to cycle it. The "Show Voltage" option in the app should always be selected. Better yet, read up how Lipo's work and how to look after them properly. They are, after all, the main thing preventing our birds from smashing back down to Mother Earth!

Hi, sir. You can also check the battery status in Aircraft Battery. The difference between battery cell should not over 0.1. If it is over 0.1, please try to fully charge the battery.

Deep discharge the battery and if you still experience problems with it then return it if still under warranty or dispose of it following local regs for lipo's.
